Come to one of these Spring Dinners. They are multi-course dinners celebrating Spring Bounty and Foraged Foods, May 15, 17 and 18, 2009. There will be local lamb, foraged roots and shoots (from Wild Organics), early harvests (from Added Value), and New York-brewed beer. Support will go to Added Value, a group that turns vacant urban lots into community gardens, and works with local teens on producing sustainable food. Check them out; they’re awesome. Tickets are available here. They’re $65-80. The food should be good (got a great review in the NY Times and Gourmet Magazine last time!) and the company enjoyable. What’s not to like about hanging out with folks on rooftops, in scratch kitchens, and at urban farms? Oh, and yours truly might be making a dish or two. I’m looking forward to having my old food collective and wonderful friends back in town… That and getting behind a stove. It’s been too long.
